Frankly, On Faith: Do All Things

Frankly, On Faith: Do All Things

Frankly, On Faith.

Frankly, On Faith.

So here’s something to prove my point: I’ve tried three times to write this post. The first two took a turn, so will be upcoming posts. But this one. I can’t seem to get it quite right.

Ridiculous, when you consider the topic.

All I’m trying to say is, God gives us what we need, when we need it.

Because we’re not God. We can’t do it all.

But He is. And He can.

And we’re in Him.

So, really, we can.

“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”
~Philippians 4:13, NLT

Just open the door, let Him in, take a deep breath, and let Him work.

Simple? Sometimes it’s not. Sometimes we want to hold on, or change the method, or the outcome. We’re control freaks like that. Am I right? We’re such control freaks that we wear ourselves out trying to not show weakness. And sometimes we wear ourselves out to the point that all anyone sees is a pile of I-don’t-care-anymore mush. A puddle of perkless blechiness.

We’re trying so hard to do it all that we end up not being able to do anything.

We live in a multi-tasking, SuperHero environment. We forget it’s okay to step back, say “no” or “not now,” and rest.

So letting Him be the project manager of our life is sometimes kinda hard to deal with. We don’t want another someone telling us what to do, even if we know we can’t do it alone. You with me?

The thing is, He’s been there. He can see on the other side of the wall, and He knows the best way to get us over it.

So for today, I’m taking that deep breath and letting Him lead. Because I don’t want to be that overwhelmed, coffee-addict, multi-tasker that barks at everyone when things don’t get done. I’d rather be the calm, sweet tea-drinking, enjoy-the-moment kinda girl.

Besides. He’s really the one who does it all, anyway.

Sometimes, doing everything through Christ doesn’t mean He helps us do it all. It means we filter everything we do through Him. And that sometimes means tossing out the pieces that no longer fit.

See? He’s already pruning away the weeds and all you did was take a breath.

Sometimes, doing everything means starting by doing nothing.

Frankly, On Faith: How Important Are You?

Frankly, On Faith: How Important are You?

Frankly, On Faith.

Frankly, On Faith.

Do you often wonder if you matter? If anyone knows the real you? Or worse, if they discovered the real you, if you’d be discarded?

I’ve got Good News for you.

Are you ready?

Wait for it . . .

God knows you.

And you know what?

He’s sticking around.

Yup. That’s right. There’s nothing you’ve done or haven’t done, will do or won’t do, that can remove you from His love and care.

Know how I know?

The Bible tells me (and you) so.

 

“And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” ~Luke 12:7, NLT

 

“He counts the stars and calls them all by name.” ~ Psalm 147:4, NLT

 

“How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!” ~Psalm 129:17-18, NLT

 

Imagine~ God loves you so much He pays attention to every atom of your being! Every. Single. Atom. I don’t know ’bout you, but I don’t count the hairs as they wash down the drain. I don’t number the grains of sand that are tracked into the house then swept up and tossed back outside.

But He does. If the littlest parts of you are so important, can you allow yourself to experience how great, how deep, how vast His love, care and attention is for all of you?

There’s no abacus big enough to count the smallest part of this equation.

Allow yourself to be surrounded by His greatness, as He allows you to grow into yours.
